: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, since obamacare implementation began on october 1, the president has spent much f his time talking about the malfunctioning website. however, i would remind the president of his own words several weeks ago. obamacare is more than just a website. the website was supposed to be the easy part. and the more people sign on to it, they will be made aware of the real problems with obamacare. in fact, when the millions of americans currently losing their health care plans try to log on will be care.gov, they met with drastically increased emiums, skyrocketing out-of-pocket cost, and reduced access to the doctors and hospitals they know. these problems are in direct contrast to the repeated promises made by the president. my constituents are rightly concerned with these broken promises and they are regularly contacting me and my office to voice their concerns. for instance, gillian in sparta, tennessee, wrote to me, and i quote, every year in the past my health care insurance has increased by small percentages. sometimes 5%, sometimes by 7%. this past week

undermining the rule of law that is at the center of our constitutional design. from obamacare to immigration, the current omission is picking and choosing which laws to enforce. it is a bedrock principle. the president must faithfully execute the act of congress. the president cannot enforce the law simply because he dislikes it. the obama administration has been equally asserted in the round of domestic policy routinely making and runs around congress through broad claims. limits. president obama is the first president since richard nixon to ignore and enacted law simply because he disagrees with it. in place of the checks and balances established by the constitution, president obama has proclaimed that "i refuse to take no for an answer." and "where congress won't act, i will." throughout the obama presidency, we have seen a pattern. president obama circumvents congress when he does not get his way. for instance, while congress is currently debating how to reform our immigration laws, the president effectively and acted the dream act himself by ordering immigration officials to stop enforc
